Happy Sunday! How do you spend your Sundays ? Me personally... I spend some time with God... reflect on the week behind... look upon the week ahead... and SLOW STITCH!
Friday I finally finished the 16th block of the quilt and along with all the feathers and yin yangs I have stitched was able to celebrate 2/3 done on this hand quilting work of art :)
Here is the 16th block...
I am marking this project in the blocks with a "pounce pad" which I am learning to like but it is very different way of marking... works well on mixed darks and mediums like these blocks are though :) And easy to get rid of... DEF not permanent! lol
Have you seen the ad on pinterest and facebook on how to make a swan out of a couple apples??? well my daughter tried it and look how great it turned out!
Do you name your sewing machines??? I never had one with a named cabinet before but it relates to the style of the cabinet... and when I show her off she even has it engraved on brass in the right side cabinet door!
More excitement... even though payday is close and fund are tight... we found this on our local Craigslist for $30!! It is a vanity and will go in our main bath...
Do you slow stitch and wonder how to keep that thread dust free while stitching??? Does that happen to you? I found a drop of something on my spool so I came up with a way to keep it fresh and clean during the long slow stitching process on larger quilts ... check it out at Celebrate Hand Quilting blog here :)
Hope your Sunday is a happy one!
Linking this post to Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday ~ and I don't use frixion pen at this time so no review to add to her post :)
